Class Information and Schedule

Are you intrigued by some of the art and how it is created?  Maybe you have an idea of your own that you think you might like to try…. or perhaps you are just curious.  A needle felting class might be something you might like to try.  Please check the schedule and the locations below and see if a class might work for you.  We tend to have alot of fun in class and sometimes students see  projects go in directions they  never thought possible.  Many of the students feel that they are not all that artistic, but no one said you had to be ….just come and enjoy learning needle felting and enjoy the camaraderie.  Hope to see you soon!!!

Needle Felt A Painting Class 
Learn to use fibers to “paint” a picture.  We will be starting with a prefelt base (sheet of partially felted wool), a simple photo or design of your choice – perhaps a single focal item and a simple background – you choose and bring with you (I will have a few designs with me as well, but I would prefer that you bring something that excites you).  Please enlarge your photo ahead of time to apprx 8 x 10…it will make it easier to use it as a reference. Then, using our fibers and needles we will try and recreate our picture in fiber (and of course use our creative license!
April 20th  – 11am – 4pm  
Cost of class $50 includes 1 prefelt sheet

Critter Class

Stab & Gab sessions will be held (same schedule as The Kntting Diva was – different place) at my studio at my home in Candler.  The second Thursday of each month from 2pm – 4pm.  Being there once a month will give everyone access to fiber, supplies, etc., also.  The address is 18 Carolyn Dr. in Candler.  Your GPS will get you there, I am about 3 miles from Smokey Park Hwy.
